Government should be committed to population control
To control the population growth, Prime Minister Modi should immediately take following steps with highest level of urgency.
The first step is to impose ban on polygamy and enact law to punish the violators severely. Those indulging in polygamy should be prevented from contesting in elections at any level. Today, we see several politicians and businessmen and others having more than one wife and not even concealing it.
The second step should be to limit the number of children to maximum of two per family and parents with more than two children should face disincentive by being made ineligible for getting jobs in the government and public sector undertakings and ineligible for selective welfare schemes of the government at the state and central level.
The third step should be to provide incentive for family with one child by introducing some imaginative schemes.
A vigorous nation wide campaign must be launched similar to Swachh Bharat campaign to make the people realize the intensity and seriousness of the population problem, so that people would be persuaded to voluntarily limit the family size.
A separate minister at cabinet rank to exclusively implement the population control programme should be appointed by the central and all state governments and the minister should be lady with administrative and communication ability and should not be mere politician.
Yearly target should be set to achieve population de growth rate for the next ten years, with mechanism and computer model to assess the population de growth rate at every six month interval.
The above schemes should come into force with effect from 1st October, 2020 and whatever the rules and laws required must be enacted, if necessary by an ordinance.
